CVS and Flash?

with 17 comments

Recently I have been working on different approaches to project management. As projects become larger and more team members are involved, a good methodology to managing those projects is crucial. As I did my research on the internet, and as I have browsed many open source projects, the use of CVS seemed synonymous.

My question is, can we use CVS in flash application development? I encourage everyone to chime in and tell me what you think.

First, for all of you that are still wondering what CVS is, I would encourage you to visit a few of these links. Also, I will be writing a small tutorial regarding how you can set up your own CVS server and how to access it.

http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/cvsbook.html (An online book about CVS)
http://www.webmasterbase.com/article.php?pid=0&aid=831 (A GREAT article that serves as an overview of how CVS can benefit all developers)
http://www.durak.org/cvswebsites/ (Another CVS resource geared specifically for web developers)

Isn’t it? Well, maybe not, but it is one of those things that you add on to the daily chore list. And then, when you are gone on vacation, you feel guilty for not having updated it :) But, I am now back from my vacation in Dallas and ready to go. In fact, I have done quite a bit of work on my Amazon Search Application which I have decided to call flamazon (nifty, ain’t it). It should be up for you to view within the next week or so. I am in the process of setting up a CFMX server to host it on.

Keep in touch, you will now see many more updates. Me and my brother have basically swapped positions. He is now on vacation and I am back. This way, you will always have one of the ‘Brothers Dura’ to check out.

Don’t go away….more to come soon!!

A New Flash Player, New ‘Features’

with 8 comments

Well, it seems like Macromedia has again released another version of the flash player with a few ‘enhancements.’ Now, my sob story :) I woke up this morning, downloaded the new player, and realized that my XML was not loading in my little app that downloads the Macromedia desdev feed. (Was that a run on?) Anyways, it turns out that the new flash player does not follow redirects, which is exactly what I was doing.

To see how to correct this problem, go here to read a tech note on the issue.
